Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I installed Apache 2.2.2 in my XP Pro machine and everything working fine. Now i plan to configure my Apache with ssl mode, which meaning when i type http://localhost it will automaticaly change to https://localhost.

when i looking at the installation file "apache_2.2.2-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi" i seems that it not compile with ssl mode.

Please guide me how to configure my Apache 2.2.2 server works with SSL mode.

Apache2.2.x doesnt support any SSL currently. Here is a quote:
[quote=http://apache.rmplc.co.uk/httpd/binaries/win32/]Apache 2.2.2 offers tremendous improvements in authentication, proxy, and cache features. The Apache HTTP Project encourages all Apache users to migrate to the 2.2 series.

The -win32-x86-no_ssl.msi package does not include any encryption software OpenSSL, mod_ssl, nor an https: enabled abs utility.

At this time, the process to follow for export notification has not been finalized. Until that time, the -win32-x86-ssl.msi with mod_ssl support based on OpenSSL is not available. Please do not inquire of the httpd project, this issue is not in our hands to address for you.

If you want to build OpenSSL 0.9.8a it is available in source code form at http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-0.9.8a.tar.gz. Due to quirks in the build, and the need to create .pdb diagnostic files, we offer this patch, patches_applied/openssl-0.9.8a-vc32-2005.patch to modify that build, and have proposed this patch back to the project for its consideration.[/quote]
This was taken from [url=http://apache.rmplc.co.uk/httpd/binaries/win32/]here[/url], from the heading [b]The current stable release is Apache 2.2.2[/b]

If you want to use SSL, then you'll either have to wait until Apache supports SSL, build openSSL from source, or downgrade to Apache2.0.x

Download a pre-compiled mod_ssl for apache 2.2.2 (win32) at hunter.campbus.com

That will save you the trouble of having to compiled the module.
